Chinese & Russian navies exercise in Yellow Sea

Text size Aa Aa

For the first time combined elements of the Russian and Chinese navies are holding joint exercises in the Yellow Sea.

The wargames include anti-submarine warfare and the simulation of hostage rescue from ships.
Russia has sent four warships including three missile crusiers, and the Chinese have deployed 16 vessels including a pair of submarines, and 4000 men for the week-long wargame.

“An anti-submarine drill is one of the most top-secret aspects for any country’s armed forces. China and Russia conducting such a drill means a good exchange between the two countries,” says Chinese military expert Yin Zhuo.

Both sides are insisting on their desire to promote peace and stability, but in a region disputed by six neighbours America is also stiffening its military presence.
